    How long will you lie down, O lazy one?
    When will you arise from your sleep [and learn self-discipline]?


    The sluggard, according to Dictionary .com is, "a person who is habitually indolent." It is synonymous with being lazy. Sleep has been identified as a major problem that faces many youths. It is necessary to sleep in order to live a healthy life and record high productivity at study. However, our concern is the abuse of sleep. If you sleep for too many hours, it would negatively affect the time for studies, and other activities necessary for your success.

    Higher Everyday For Today Written by W.F.Kumuyi


    Medical experts recommend an average of eight hours of sleep daily. Most students don't have the luxury of more than that, especially senior students and those in external examination classes. You could even sleep less than the recommended eight hours during examination periods and make up during holidays. How about waking up early to fellowship with God before other activities of the day come calling? It takes self-discipline to wake up and get out of bed early in the morning for a quiet time with God. The sluggard finds this a hard task. Pray for a change today, you sluggard!

    Challenge: Too much sleep causes poor performance.
    Prayer: Lord, help me to overcome laziness and too muchp sleep
    Quote: Pray for a change today, you sluggard!
